Aside from The Little Rascals, the comedy duo Abbott and Costello and their many musical and riotously hilarious features make up my the majority of my earliest cinematic memories. Thanks to my father for allowing me to grow up with these clowns. While my favorite "Bud & Lou" picture remains THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES, an altogether different sort of ghost story set during the Revolutionary War, HOLD THAT GHOST is up certainly up there among the most wildly enjoyable of the pair's antics. It's a spooky sort of mystery, as were many of the features - engineered by Universal for ultimate crossover appeal with the same crowds buying tickets for their famous Horror pictures - but this is entertainment aimed at the whole family. On 35mm. Unmissable, in my opinion. And did I mention free? - SBP
